A pair of Chinese Imari beake porcelain vases, 18th century

Pair of Chinese Imari porcelain beaker vases decorated with peonies, rockery and birds, Kangxi period (1662-1722) for porcelain, on French gilt bronze (ormolu) mounts from the Second Empire (1852-1870). The porcelain in good condition, the frames with their original gilding without additions or subsequent additions. The base bearing a label "Duvauchel, 34 Rue de l'Université, Tea Shop, Chinese Porcelain, fans and curiosities". From an old private collection in the South of France. Catalog of Acquisitions 2020. Total height: 43cm; height of the vases: 36.5 cm This pair of cornets is an exemplary illustration of the very qualitative production carried out during the reign of the Kangxi Emperor in China for export via the Dutch East India Company to Europe. It is a Chinese Imari, distinct from the Japanese model by its azure cobalt blues and its luminous iron red as well as by the general style of the painting and finally its slender form. Quickly much more popular than their Japanese counterparts, the 18th century Chinese Imari were first collected by European monarchs and mounted on contemporary bronzes, then often in the 19th century mounted on gilt bronzes made in the 19th century on 18th century models. as is the case here, to be marketed in stores that exploited the fashion of Orientalism such as the one whose label still appears at the base which offered fans, tea and porcelain as well. These objects are therefore, in addition to their undeniable beauty, true historical testimonies of the craze for the Far East in Europe at the end of the 19th century.
